Some timecodes that I noted:
2:00 the importance of avoiding too much abstraction in efficiency
7:00 interesting discussion around Erlang
28:00 the process object on the server parallels the window object in the browser
As with many of these videos there are always new URLs to explore:
Plurk: Twitter-like service
Curl: Used in showing some examples towards the end of the video.
I'm interested in Node.js on the server-side for some interactive mobile application (games and other) ideas. Ideally will try to find it hosted so I don't have to roll my own (virtual) server.
